What happens when my child is teething?
Babies usually start teething when they’re around 5 months old, although it can happen sooner or later than this. When they’re teething, it means that their first teeth are starting to push into their mouth through their gums, which can be a painful or uncomfortable process for baby. If your little one is teething, you may notice the following symptoms:
- Red or sore gums
- One flushed cheek
- They are rubbing their ear
- They are dribbling more than they usually would
- They want to gnaw or chew on things more than they usually would
- They’re more fussy or fretful than usual
How will Bonjela Soothing Teething Gel help to ease my child’s teething pain?
Bonjela Soothing Teething Gel works to ease your child’s teething pain by creating a protective film over their sensitive gums. This protects the irritated gum from pain, discomfort, and inflammation as they’re teething. This fast-acting formula is perfect for little ones aged 6 months and over, who are suffering with irritated gums as they go through the teething process.
